Paradise Lost: Test Drive, V-Rally Dev Eden Shut Down

Truth be told, things at Test Drive Unlimited, V-Rally, and Alone in the Dark developer Eden Games haven't been going particularly well for quite some time. The sorry saga began with a gigantic round of layoffs and a nice, breezy Sunday afternoon strike in the park, and now – two years later – the final nail's been hammered into the coffin. Atari, as it turns…

Biden Your Time: Citizens Of Earth

You've made a game about tweaking a waveform in order to fit the patterns that it encounters, which is a fine thing to have created, but what next? Eden Industries have defied expectations and instead of a music-manipulation epic, they've decided to craft a blend of Pokemon, Earthbound and grassroots politics. Citizens of Earth has a real world, yet surrealist JRPG setting that is reminiscent…

Interview: Blossom Minds On Life After Eden

Yesterday it was announced that ten former members of Eden Games in France have split to create a new independent studio called Blossom Minds. A tongue-in-cheek press release explained that they were no longer interested in AAA games, but wanted instead to focus on digitally distributed smaller ideas. We got in touch with the team to find out more, and have heard back from designer…

Test Drive Unlimited 2 Says Sorry, Patches

You may remember that Test Drive Unlimited 2 did not have a great Valentine's Day. Launched to cries of, "Er, could you finish it now please?", its buggy state did not win favour. Eden Games and Atari are attempting a big old "sorry" by offering not only a patch that addresses a lot of issues, but also the first globule of DLC for utterly free.…

Most Tranquil: Test Drive’s Ferrari

If you are a British motorist, like me, then you are more likely to associate sports cars with Jeremy Clarkson's sad, frantic clowning than you are any sense of genuine style or chic, which is something of a shame. After all, objects like modern Ferraris really are engineering genius pushed to fetishistic extremes, and I think that's what Atari and Eden Games are getting at…

Why To Test Drive Test Drive Unlimited 2

Cheap Punning Rule #48 - if in doubt, tautology. What other Cheap Punning Rules do you know, beautiful readers? Anyway, the point: Atari has opened up beta signups for its driving/infinite wealth MMO Test Drive Unlimited 2. You should sign up. Why? Because the first TDU was by and large excellent, exploring fascinating and fundamental concepts of virtual-world existence that the vast bulk of MMOs…

Test Drive Unlimited 2 Does Beta

Interesting times for racing games, what with the fantastical feature sets of Blur and Split/Second, and then open-worldiness descending this summer in the form of Test Drive Unlimited 2 (and, I suppose, in the form of the Need For Speed MMO). Eden Games have sent word that there's a limited sign up for the beta phase of the new Test Drive Unlimited, although no details…
